1949 - Mexico Paintings and Monoprints

Harry Jackson married Grace Hartigan just before they traveled to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.  While there Harry worked on the 3 paintings: Mexican Composition, Toro Rojo del Sol, La Fiesta. 

These paintings included passages of dripped paint which needed to be blotted. The illustration shows how a Monoprint was created in this process.

The Random Monoprints are the result of that blotting.  These are selected works from the series done in Mexico.
